I needed a nice spot to hang one of my latest paintings and a recent eBay find.  I decided on the small wall between our kitchen and dining room, opposite our laundry room.  We had a gallery of photos in distressed frames on the wall before, and we moved them to the stairwell leading upstairs.

I was lucky to find this Mosaicwares piece on eBay.  I've been collecting Mosaicwares for years.

It will have a useful function.  Can you guess?

Yep!  I'm hanging my aprons on it.

The aprons will come in handy very soon in both the kitchen and art studio as I prepare for:

Doesn't it sound *FUN* !!!!!

Until next time...

  1. The mosaic piece is SO pretty and so YOU! I love it. I wish I had some wall space! And I love your artwork, beautiful!


  2. I'm not familiar with mosaics ware. Very pretty. I know it must look just right in your kitchen holding your aprons. Really lovely painting, Ricki Jill

    I revisited your kitchen the other day for inspiration!

  3. ooo, I love the mosaic war and the painting of course, its one of my favorites for sure! This sounds like so much fun!!!

  4. Yes, it does sound like great fun! :)

  5. I love that mosaic piece. I have been saving old china in hopes of putting together a piece or two myself. I just love that one. Can't wait to hear more about your Mad Hatter's party- xo Diana

  6. I love how well that all coordinates, including the aprons!

  7. Oh RJ, I love it! Your beautiful painting, the mosaicware & your sweet's all perfect!

  8. Perfect spot for your aprons!

  9. Ricky Jill, this new mosaic piece is perfect for your kitchen. It looks terrific with the painting (which is one of my favorites) and with the aprons. '-) I've participated int he Mad Tea Party before. Need to get my act together and try to come up with a post for this year. It's great fun!

  11. The mosaicware is so pretty and so you! so are your aprons!
    I've followed The Mad Tea Party before but never participated.
    Sigh...maybe next year!

  12. I love the mosaic piece and the painting is one of my favorites. {Squeal...I'm so excited} What a great place to put your aprons. Your Mad Hatter party sounds like it would be fun. I can not wait to see what you come up with.

  13. Love that beautiful mosaicware hook - perfect place. You have me inspired to make a little something for my kitchen! :) Ooh, I love projects. It won't be nearly as beautiful, of course. Hope you have a GREAT day.

  14. You have the most darling spaces! Every time I get depressed at the bachelor chic home we're in (no joke, we haven't put up any artwork on the walls yet, and it's been 7 months since we moved in), I look at your posts and get all cheery about feminine colors and themes and changing decor. You're my virtual cheery cottage home! :D

  15. That is adorable! And I love tea parties!
